Employer Information

What Can an LCC Student Intern Do For You?

Co-op is a working partnership between the student, Lane Community College, and the Co-op employer. Hundreds of employers participate in the program each year and over 500 Lane students enroll in co-op each year working in both paid and non-paid positions. Many Co-op students are retained by employers as regular employees after graduation, although employment is not guaranteed.

Cooperative Education offers:

  • An excellent source of motivated and qualified personnel
  • An effective way to balance work schedules of part-time and job-share employees
  • An opportunity to be involved in the educational process that contributes to both your profession and the community

As an employer, you have access to both part-time and full-time students who can fill positions related to their academic area of study or career path. This integration of classroom and community is the essence of co-op, a structured program that enhances student learning while providing skilled individuals to business, industry, government, and non-profit organizations.
